Bedford Thunder is a community club that aims to promote and develop basketball both within the local and wider Bedfordshire community.

Our aim is to encourage excellence in everything we do while at the same time maintaining a welcoming and inclusive club ethos.

We currently have two Men’s teams, open to anyone 16 upwards, which train on Tuesdays 19:45-21:45 (which is by invite only) but also offer an open scrimmage on Sundays 16:30-18:00 at Bedford Academy which is the point of call to be invited to the men’s training. Being a community-focused club means we welcome those of all ability and experience levels, whether you’re a seasoned vet playing at a high level, you’ve never bounced a ball before, or somewhere in between.

Membership costs, first £50 instalment (which includes registration, insurance and training top) followed by 9 monthly £20 payments and the final 2 months are free. However the first session’s free, so there’s really no excuse not to come down and see what we’re about.

The clubs first team is in its fourth season in the Hertfordshire Basketball Association and the second team is in its first season with the Cambridgeshire Basketball Association.
